Love coffee? Me too. In fact, one of my favorite lounging around shirts has the saying “Coffee ’til Cocktails” on the front. Pretty much sums it up for me! Although I do like Starbucks, what I really enjoy is checking out local coffee shops. We will even often add that to our vacation itineraries as an afternoon treat. So you can bet, I’ve explored all the coffee shops near me. Today I’m sharing my favorites located North of Indianapolis.
Noble Coffee & Tea – this one is just a mile from my house and right downtown on the charming Noblesville square so it’s definitely a favorite. For years, I would take my kids there for “coffee shop day” before school started once a week so this place has lots of great memories for me. It has two rooms with plenty of seating for working or meeting with friends. My teen daughter and her friends love to hang out at this coffee shop and study for finals or summer school. Of course, the coffee is excellent AND they have Circle City Kombucha on tap. Yum!
Indie Coffee Roasters – right on the edge of downtown Carmel, the vibe in this coffee shop is relaxing but a little edgy. The coffee is strong and bold which I love. The decor is a bit industrial and I’m a huge fan of the outside patio. It’s a little far for me for regular visits, but if I’m near Carmel I’ll definitely stop by!
2021 UPDATE: This coffee shop has sadly closed ...Della Leva – I found this coffee shop during a recent promotion of my 5-Day Add More Adventure to Your Life Challenge and I’m now a huge fan. This shop has an amazing Vietnamese Iced Coffee which is a favorite of mine on a hot summer day. It is also located very close to one of my son’s weekly soccer practice spots, so it’s perfect for me to zip over and get a little work done while he is at practice. There is a small patio but it hasn’t been open the times I’ve visited so I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet. Oh, and they also serve wine and beer – a plus if it’s evening and you can’t handle any more coffee late in the day!
